The best session so far. Don Tapscott (he’s Canadian eh?) gave a fascinating presentation about how young people grow up and how technology is part of their lives without really realizing that it’s there, just like breathing. I have to look at my notes for more insights but I’m encouraged that this perception of the bad teenager looking at all the wrong places online, or the bad teenagers wasting their time playing games, surfing the internet and lacking social skills is conventional wisdom. Great stuff, I even recognize some of my own behaviour in his research.
